Diorama, which was made from epoxy resin last year, turned yellow. So I remake this one.
Biggest model I`ve built to date, and an enjoyable one to do. This is still work in progress as regards the ordnance which is constructed but not painted. I used some artistic licence on this model and put my own initials on the fuselage and pai[...]

This Typhoon served with 439 Squadron RCAF near the end of the war in Europe.
It has the lat[...]
I am calling this one done. Monogram 1/48 Hawker Typhoon Mk IB. The molds for this oldie were dated 1967 or 68 I cant remember now. I remember building it with my dad over 40 years ago. The model is painted with Tamiya acrylics and I added KMC r[...]

Monograms classic 1/48 Typhoon from the 1970's, rescribed the panel lines, drilled out the guns, exhaust etc, scratchbuilt an interior, detailed the wheel wells and gear, converted kit prop to a 3 blade prop, and added bomb racks and bombs.
This is my latest work of propeller warbird . It is a 1/48 kit of the monogram, simple but with reasonably fittings. I preferred to paint the D-Day stripes, instead of decals.. Some weatering, not to much, gives a final touch...
an oldie but goodie from 1972...sanded out the lines and did a half fast re scribe...Techmod decals...this plane was meant to be a fighter but the engine leaked so much oil and exhaust pilots had to muzzle up and go on oxygen as soon as they fir[...]
